Migrants from all over Central America amassed together to flee from danger within their countries, in hope to seek in refuge within Untied States. Sueño Americano (American Dream) addresses President Trump’s Zero Tolerance Policy and the suffering caused by the separation of children from their families. The three jugs represent the American government’s attitude towards immigrants as objects be discarded, rather than as individuals. The faded and illegible surface design has been transcribed with a court testimony of an individual whose family fell victim to this heinous practice. The testimony describes the personal struggles of being separated from their three children, who are separated from each other.
